Fringe hairstyles are much appreciated in 2021, and if you want to look modern, you should get one too. However, the fringe is not only a simple haircut because it can be used to hide or emphasize certain face features.
For example, it beautifully frames the face and looks so stylish at the same time. More than this, there are many types of bangs out there: asymmetrical, wispy, blunt and you just need to find the one that suits you.
Who Should Try A Fringe
Unfortunately, not everybody looks good with all types of bangs. To establish which ones suit you, you need to know your face type. Only after that, you can find the ideal bangs. To help you get the perfect cut, here are a few tricks for each face shape:
Fringe hairstyles for Oval face – it’s the best face shape if you want bangs. Opt for long and thick bangs that go just above the eyebrows
Fringe hairstyles for Square face – if you have this shape, it’s recommended to choose long, layered, and thin bangs.
Fringe hairstyles for Round face – the best option for you, when you have this face type, is to choose a long fringe that is side swept and beautifully blends with your hair
Fringe hairstyles for Heart-shaped face – the bangs must be slightly shorter in the center and longer on the sides
Fringe hairstyles for Long face – you will need to shorten the length of your face and a well-placed fringe will help you do that. Get straight bangs that cover your eyebrows and end just above the eyes.
